All of those wondering if Stone Cold Steve Austin would make a return to the ring almost had their wish granted on Thursday, but unfortunately, things change in wrestling.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t EWrestling News), a WrestleMania 30 main event that would have pitted heel Triple H against Stone Cold—who was representing Vince McMahon—has been scrapped. According to the report, the WWE had a plan for SummerSlam, which kicks off in just nine days.
The original direction would have seen Vince, Stephanie and Triple H unite at SummerSlam before splitting up again later in the year with Triple making a heel turn. Now things look to be heading towards a slower build, with the culmination still being at WrestleMania 30.
Now, the world is left to wonder what will happen now. Expect a power struggle between Triple H and Vince McMahon at some point culminating in a match. HHH will most likely win, sending McMahon in a much-deserved "retirement."
The WWE hasn't seen Stone Cold for quite a long time on WWE television. In fact, his last WrestleMania appearance since WrestleMania 27 when he was the special guest referee for the Jerry Lawler/Michael Cole match.
Needless to say, he hasn't made a direct impact since Tough Enough.
Here is the golden question: Who will represent McMahon?
Will it be The Rock, Brock Lesnar or Goldberg? Whoever it will be, every wrestling fan will watch the match with McMahon's position in WWE in jeopardy. We will continue to watch this story as it develops.
